Office of Housing and Residence Life

The Juilliard residence hall experience offers students a safe, inclusive, and welcoming environment that fosters development of practical life skills and independence. Residents are from all over the world and study in our dance, drama, and music divisions, creating a multifaceted community of artists where students enjoy building friendships, generating new ideas, and collaborating outside of the classroom. Juilliard’s Residence Life staff works to nurture the growth and development of all residents and coordinates fun and enriching programs throughout the year.

The Meredith Willson Residence Hall is located just steps away from the school building, providing a unique opportunity to have no commute and enjoy stunning views of Lincoln Center and the Upper West Side.

In addition to student housing, the Meredith Willson Residence Hall is home to the Daniel Saidenberg Faculty Suites and the Susan and Elihu Rose Presidential Suite, which provide apartment-style lodging for faculty members and guests.

When school is not in session, the residence hall is also available to host summer conferences.


9 a.m.-12 a.m. midnight 
(excluding some holidays and school closure days)


The Office of Residence Life consists of two full-time professional staff members who live in the building and provide 24/7 emergency response. Additionally, three live-in graduate assistants (GAs) and 11 resident assistants (RAs) support students and promote a positive experience in the residence hall.  

Residence Life hosts approximately 75 programs each year that give students the opportunity to break free from their rigorous daily routine. Some programs are entirely social in nature, while others have an educational spin designed to give students the tools to succeed both in and out of the artistic realm.
